Curran’s Attack on John Paul II Rebutted, by William E. May
The book is a sustained attack on the late pope’s moral theology. Curran makes more than a dozen extremely serious charges that, if true, would be sufficient thoroughly to discredit John Paul II as a moral guide. He faults the pope for his theological presuppositions and methodology, his “classicist/deductive” approach and failure to recognize an “inductive/historical consciousness approach,” his absorption of anthropology into Christology and his flawed Christology, etc. If John Paul II had been a student in the Rev. Professor Curran’s graduate classes in moral theology he may have passed, but barely.
Here I will show how utterly false are several principal criticisms that Curran levels against John Paul’s thought. Similar criticisms could be made of his other charges.

My Favorite Priest - "I go where my soldiers go" , by Rebecca Messall
We moms were talking in a parish meeting room, eagerly waiting for our first meeting with a new priest in town, Fr. Peter Jaramillo. We’d heard about his sensitive and inspiring pro-life homilies. Would he have time to be part of our pro-life efforts?
We stopped talking when we saw a man wearing green camouflage fatigues and combat boots striding toward us.
“I’m Fr. Peter,” he said.
